When he was eighteen, for his school-leaving assignment, David Geisser wrote a cookbook under the title “Around the World in 80 Plates” and became an overnight celebrity with the national press. He then published several articles and was invited on TV talk shows, including on “Aeschbacher”.
After gathering some work experience in the romantic gourmet restaurant “Motto del Gallo” near Taverne, he started his apprenticeship with “Casale”, a Gault and Millau restaurant in Wetzikon run by star chef Antonio Colaianni. He rounded off his training with another two years’ experience at “Colors”, UBS’s management restaurant at the Paradeplatz in Zurich.
The Tagesanzeiger has compared him with England’s star chef Jamie Oliver. Apart from his professional skills and success which are quite outstanding for someone his age, his commitment and charisma are sure to open doors for him in the future.
In February 2013, during his second year with the Papal Swiss Guard at the Vatican in Rome, David Geisser wrote his third cookbook “Buon appetito”, which was an international success.
Since September 2015, David Geisser has been working as a Chef for special events. He is also a sought-after guest on television programs, and tours internationally to promote his books.
